So when we were invited to do a review, I knew exactly what I wanted. I was running a tiny bit late because and Mukta and Himanshu were there at least half an hour before me. Even then, they were kind enough to only nibble on the bread basket or the Panne della Tagliatella which were freshly-baked foccacias with a variety of toppings - olives, caramelised onions, cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs - which could be dunked into some lovely flavoured olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
While we waited to place the order, the antipasti Mozzarelleta was fantastic. Gooey cheese with nuts and cherry tomatoes and a drizzle of balsamic reduction made the meal just perfecto. Provoletta was brought out next - provolone cheese sitting stringily atop some grilled veggies.
As we waited for our mains to arrive - the pizzas came to greet us. We'd ordered the Melanzana - Aubergines, tomatoes and balsamic and the Proscuitto with turkey ham. I'd eaten the Melanzana earlier and loved it this time too.
The stuffed pastas and the salads were out next. Sid and I didn't try the seafood pasta, with the allergies and all but I was told that it was awesome. To be honest, I didn't care for the salad or the pasta. Perhaps it was just bad ordering on our end.
Anyhoo. All this was washed down with a glass of Fratelli's white and then my favourite course was brought out. We decided to share the desserts so the tiramisu, chocolate mousse and the cheesecake and the lemon sorbet were served to us. I looooved the sorbet and am dying to replicate it. Then it was time to cut Parul's birthday cake.
